The show is over.

Just a quick thank you to the people who sent me such lovely messages about my bears and for the collectors  who adopted them! I really had fun with this show and it's the last one of the season! Three shows in a row have been exhausting but loads of fun. I'm not sure what I'll be doing with myself now that I'm not in panic sewing mode!
Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!
Thanks again!!

show bears and other ramblings.

Managed to get 8 bears done for the show. I have one more I am trying to get done before the end of the night. I should probably get on that! lol... but if not 8 new critters are ready to go and I really hope you guys like them. It's been a load of work doing 3 show in 2 months but I seem to work the best under pressure.. lol.
 There is still time to VOTE for your favorite bear in the show.. so be sure to go vote! Lol!




Hugs!

Kittens revisited





I've been asked how the kittens are doing and they are doing great. Lilly looks like a real cat and Minion, well she is still scrawny.. but growing.

Halloween goodness

video 
I really needed a break from sewing so I decided I better upload some of my Halloween photos and I have the one video that turned out half decent. It looked better in the dark but the pics did not turn out. 








Enjoy!

Spent the morning sewing then went for an outing with my best bear bud Kristina, she really is a nut and lucky that I love her  ;) .. lol. We had an entertaining late lunch/early dinner but I had to cut the night short to sew for the show... I'm sure I'd just get into some mischief anyway so it was likely for the best...  I did manage to buy myself some sexy Granny glasses though.. haha!

I was blog surfing a few days ago and came across this gem. Pure goodness.. lol. 

Back to sewing! 6 down..... at least 2 to go!

Wow, 2 posts in one day.. lol.

I finally got Halloween put away! Yay! Wow, what a huge amount of work. Took me over 9 hours to pack all of my props up. I forgot what a production it really is. lol. At least it's all done now for another year. I'll be spending the rest of the weekend getting ready for the Teddies Worldwide Christmas show. I'm very excited about the bears I've made for the show and I hope you like them too. Please go vote! The link is in my post below this one.

It's been another good week here and I can say with full honesty this is the happiest I've been in a long time. It's a good feeling and I hope it continues. The past few years with all the struggles have been really difficult on me and I think maybe finally my luck is turning around. They say all things happen for a reason and I really hope that is true.

Tomorrow I'm going to head to the mall and see if I can't spend my birthday money on myself this year... as for tonight I am going to go snuggle in bed with a cat or two and watch Water for Elephants that I picked up the other day on DVD. I can't wait. It was one of my favorite books and I hope the movie does it justice.
Night all, I hope you have a great weekend!
